    like most of you i am always being pulled over or stopped by people to ask about my motorized bicycle. most of my riding is back and forth across the island to work from my condo. i made some business cards i just hand out and tell them they can see lots of cool motorized bicycles and find answers to their questions on the web site. if anyone would like the file to print some pm me your email and i will send to you. the template is for any 10 card sheet or just use thicker paper and cut them out. here is what is on them. plain and simple

    Re: buisness cards

    Paul,
    I've been doing this for a while. I've had several different cards with different bikes on them but always have our forum mentioned. They've all said, "Everything you've ever wanted to know about motorized bicycles". I always carry cards with me when I ride and I keep a few in my wallet for when I'm just talking to people and the subject comes up.
    It's a great way to promote the forum as well as the hobby.

    Tom

    That's really cool! Nice simplistic design, did you make it yourself?

    yes i made the design with photo shop. took a lot of hours but i enjoyed it. was first time ever doing anything like that and am happy with the result. they come in real handy when you run in to a person that wants to talk forever and you have to be someplace.

    Re: buisness cards

    Nice design Paul, will match my T-shirt when I get one in a couple weeks. :) Dunno if you've seen it, but I started a similar card thread back in October '10 in the pic section, (is in my sig too). Started it after seeing a similar thread from way earlier. I forget who started it, but they were beauty full colour ink eaters :p So I tried something simpler. Over 2,200 views on the thread so hopefully someone printed out a couple, lols.

    Still carry some in my wallet, but I'm in a small'ish town of around 11k ppl, so after handing out about two hundred over the 2+ years I've been here, word of mouth has most ppl knowing what their looking at and seeing some other riders around finally. Makes for faster store runs, less lengthy stops on cruises, etc... heh heh.

    I'll pm for a copy of yours, at the time I didn't think to make an eBike one.

    um, thanks? lol, I know what you mean though. It's better to learn how to do it yourself, for sure.

    Re: buisness cards

    If you mean this thread: Bike Cards... I may have neglected to mention that I might use the color inkjet at work to print them, thus the amount of ink isn't a consideration *whistles innocently* :D

    Just a thing I do for my business, print on magnets. You can buy printable sheets at any office supply and stick em to your gas tank. Is way more expensive but folks save em where as with a paper one, they end up in a wallet with a phone number on the back.

    When I print these up, gonna change the caption to;

    MotorBicycling.com

    Stop pedaling your arse around town​



    Wut? I didn't say peddeling. snork.
